It seems to me that since we’re calling ourselves “libertarian,” someone ought to post the sequel to last year’s Keynes vs. Hayek rap video, “Fear the Boom and Bust”. (My favorite part is when Hayak unexpectedly stumbles upon a copy of Keynes’s General Theory.)
After you’ve see the first one, check out the new one, “Fight of the Century”. It’s got better production values, including better sets, more actors and extras, and most important, better mustaches.
Professional economists might differ with the video makers on the apparent strengths of each side of the debate, but as far as I can tell, both of these videos are pretty accurate in their depictions of these alternative approaches to managing the macroeconomy (or not).
